Dahlia buds not opening

I have searched and found some info on problems with dahlia buds not opening but they don't seem to be the same problem I'm having with my Mystic Dreamer dahlia. I bought it in bloom and it looked great, but since then it forms buds that won't open. There doesn't appear to be a problem with the buds,but the stem leading to the bud dries up and dies. The plant itself looks fine. Any ideas? I have only tried growing dahlias once before and the slugs/snails kept eating the blooms. My current dahlia is in a well-draining container in full sun.Thanks for any help!
What shape are the buds, round or pointy?
